    Does Anybody Know the Value of The Year of A Million Dreams Collectors Pins?

    My family and I were one of the lucky families approached at random and given four lanyards with the two commemorative pins of the year of a million dreams a few years back.Does anyone know the value of these lanyards and pins right now currently? I feel sure that they have increased in value,I'm just not sure as to what.Thanks for any info.

    I betcha this is what you're talking about:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Disney-Year-...item19c24aeebd

    I'll say this... I've seen them on eBay before for a lot less than that poster has it.

    I do indeed and I'm glad to see you back!

    I suppose as far as the lanyard and pins are concerned, they are best kept for now. Give it another 10-20-50 years and they'll probably be worth a fortune!

    As with any "collectible", the only 'value' of an item is what you're able to find some dolt willing to pay for it. Most times, these itmes are so mass-produced that they really aren't limited. If they're numbered, at least then you can tell how many were made.

    That is true.I guess it's not only what other people think they are worth,but also what the owner thinks they are worth.For instance:I would never sell one of these lanyards with the two pins that was given to me by a cast member for less than $50-$80 each.But that's just me.So as you see,I value them at a higher price than maybe the average.Plus like I said before,these were only given out to guests at random,so no,we do not know how many were mass produced for the year long Year of a million dreams promo.

    Well, to my point, sure you could try to seel it for $50 - $80, but that doesn't mean you'll get it. You could make anything your asking price.

    Once the YOAMD is antique and most of the lanyards and pins that existed have been trashed, disappeared, lost etc. it'd be worth a lot more.

    As an example: I've seen maps from the 15th anniversary celebration (yes... maps) selling for (not just being asked) upwards of $50.

    Supernova and BamaJenn,I agree with both of you.A person can ask anything for something but will he get it?I am really not planning on selling these anytime soon.Or maybe never.I don't know at this point.I have just been wondering if their values have increased since we received them at Epcot.
